  • Well written

    Unique presentation of a story. The beginning of the book sets the stage: Zoe goes on a school camping trip and disappears. Her body is found the morning after. The rest of the book is like a back story, even though it takes place in the present. Various people in Zoe's life explain their relationship with Zoe and their impression of her. In each character you can sense that an important fact is being left out. At one point, it seems that everyone in Zoe's life might know something about her mysterious death. Everyone has secrets that they are holding back. All of us are all viewed differently by people in our lives but when those views are put together they create the whole person. This is how we learn who Zoe was. Zoe is a multi faceted character. She has a nice, sweet side but she also has a mean girl side. Well written, very relevant to our times and culture. And, perhaps there is a lesson to be learned. Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for an advance readers copy.

  • Loved!!!!!

    My Review: I loved, loved, loved this book so much!!!!! I’ve read many of Nicole Trope’s books and this one was by far the best. I’m telling you this woman does not disappoint when she writes. This book centers around Zoe and what happened at camp that caused her death. Zoe was only sixteen and what possibly could’ve happened to her on that trip. Did she commit suicide? Did she fall by accident? Or did someone just hate her enough to kill her? You find out this answers and do much more. I’m a big fan of Nicole Trope and all her books. I don’t eat or sleep until it is finished. This one was no exception. I couldn’t put this down for the life of me. I had to find out what happened to poor Zoe and why. I can’t say enough good things about this book. What I really loved about this one was the alternating chapters of each character. You got different perspectives and got to feel what they felt. It was not one sided. I also loved the story line. Who doesn’t love a good murder mystery. That ending though is truly what made this book wonderful. It truly shocked me. I also loved the fact that this author wrapped up everything up in a neat little bow. No stone was left unturned. Nothing was left hanging. This book is definitely going to be in my top reads of the year. Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • Heartbreaking Thriller

    Zoe is the epitome of the teenaged girl you love to hate in high school... skinny, pretty, popular, and a total terror to those not in her inner circle, although she doesn't really treat anybody well at all. When she is found dead during a weekend camping trip with her school, everyone assumes she tried going to find the restroom and got lost in the dark, but it would not have been a good story if that was the end. This book follows around all the people involved in the aftermath of this tragedy, her mom, stepdad, sister, her best friends, her teachers, her ex-boyfriend, and the girl who is usually the main target of her bullying. There is laughter, tears, and some suspense (not much by my standards), but overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable book. It did not take long to figure out who was involved and what happened that fateful night and after awhile, I started to see the good things about Zoe and why she was loved regardless of the character she portrayed. Thank you NetGalley for allowing me to leave an honest review for this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Page-turning

    The Girl Who Never Came Home by Nicole Trope tells a story of a mother's love and the heart-wrenching story of when a child goes missing. There were many twists and turns, which made for an incredible and page-turning story. The characters were unique, and the scenes were described well and had me right in the middle of the story with the characters. The author wrote with sensitivity, and I would like to read more from this author.

  • Be Kind

    I'm so broken hearted right now! The Girl Who Never Came Home really moved me. It's told by everyone involved's perspective from the teacher in charge to the girls family and friends. I think a lot can be learned from this story. Bullying can happen to anyone by anyone. I also think, that in this world of social media, bullying happens even more. Everyone needs to be able to speak out about being bullied and expect to be believed. More should be done to deter bullies and we should all foster the "in a world were you can be anything, BE KIND"

    Thanks for your feedback!
